admin's picture
China is one of my favorite countries and so are Chinese dishes and the Pork Stuffed Clams Deep Fried And Simmered tops the list. I have been experimenting quite a few variations on this Pork Stuffed Clams Deep Fried And Simmered over the past one month. Here's the one I like the best!
Ingredients
  Clams 24
  Ginger root slice 2
  Scallion stalks 1
  Sherry 1 Tablespoon
  Lean pork 1⁄2 Pound
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cornstarch 1 Teaspoon
  Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)
  Stock 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 1 Teaspoon
  Cornstarch 2 Tablespoon
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

1. Wash clams as in step 2 of Basic Steamed Clams. Place in a deep heatproof bowl.
2. Slice ginger root; cut scallion stalk in 2-inch sections. Add to bowl along with sherry and steam as in step 3 of Basic Steamed Clams.
3. Shell clams, reserving the shells. (Reserve the clam broth for soup.)
4. Mince or grind pork together with clam meat. Blend in cornstarch, soy sauce, salt and remaining sherry.
5. Stuff mixture into half-shells. Blend the second quantity of cornstarch to a paste with water; then, with fingertips, rub paste over the stuffing to coat. (This will seal in the mixture.)
6. Heat oil. Carefully lower in clams, stuffing-side up, a few at a time. Deep-fry, basting with hot oil, until golden. Drain on paper toweling.
7. Combine stock, sugar and remaining soy sauce; then bring to a boil, stirring. Add stuffed clams and simmer, covered, 20 minutes.
8. Blend remaining cornstarch and cold water to a paste. Transfer clams to a warm serving platter, leaving liquids in pan. Stir in cornstarch paste to thicken; then pour sauce over clams and serve.
